Wish I could rate as 0!! Having seen the freak shakes at both this establishment and another just down the road, we decided to visit both on our recent visit to Matlock Bath. As we approached, we noticed a sign on the door saying freak...More

We visited today and had a great experience. My son had a freak shake which he loved, although the do-nut was stodgy and heavy as someone else previously mentioned. I had the raspberry and lemon cake and my husband had a cream tea. We found...More

Visited the Matlock Bath coffee shop! Nice atmosphere and selection of drinks and cakes! I had a smoothie, which still had whole chunks or fruit in, but overall was nice! Cakes were lovely, slightly overpriced but a nice visit!

The sandwiches are lovely, all served fresh with a small dressed salad and a handful of crisps. However, it was the freakshakes I was really taken with. It was monster! It was a more of a pudding than a drink! I’d definitely recommend trying it...More
